SIT – São Paulo 2010 was very well organized, filled with latest technologies lectures and market application to key SAP tools.
This idea was born last year, due to the pro-active and positive attitude of a Brazilian consultant, Marcelo Ramos. Him, together with some other high capable friends, did the first event with very limited financial resources and almost no marketing. But did not surrender to the initial failure, or at least, the initial results did not match the expectations.
This year, Marcelo and his colleagues started to work on the event many months before. So they could create communication channels, raise meetings among the “staff”, build a much more complete backstage structure (website, blog, email marketing, etc…). besides, some companies offered to sponsor the visual media and the event day apparatus (hostess, banners, t-shirts, badges, etc…).
The result: a very profitable day, full of very interesting subjects, peer consultants and the presence of huge variety of professionals. From SAP prospects to SAP Mentors, everybody was connected in common aims:
· Get to know new technologies
· Understand SAP key-to-the-market tools
· Do networking
· Consolidate SAP as a complete and well supported software.
In my simple opinion, as one of the lecturers, this event could be used or, even better, sponsored by Agencies so that, they would have in one single place, the most brilliant minds to work with.
Also, it left a “need more”feeling in the people who were there that, I could say, only one event a year is not enough.
Congratulations to all lecturers, to the Sponsors and mainly to Marcelo and the staff for such a good job and passionate effort and work.
Hope to see you next SIT!!!
